Disabilities and labour Market earnings in Australia
AbstractThis research examines the effect of disability status on the labour market earnings of males and females in Australia. The results indicate that disabilities have a large impact on labour earnings, however, this impact is not uniform across disabilities or between males and females for the same disability. Disfigurement or deformity disabilities, for example, have a significant impact on female earnings but appear largely insignificant for male earnings. In contrast, blackouts, fits and loss of consciousness have a strong effect on male earnings and a much weaker effect on female earnings. Overall, emotional and nervous conditions appear to have the largest impact on both female and male labour market earnings.
